Firedoglake has come up with the perfect name for the Republican war strategy in Iraq:
Republicans want to sit and watch. That’s the Republican plan. Sit and watch…They like to scream and yell about any idea that calls for a phased withdrawal, calling it “Cut and Run”. But what is their plan? It’s to do, well, nothing. Just sit there and take casualties and throw billions of dollars down a rat hole. Good plan!
I’m particularly amused at the Republican claim that if we announce a withdrawal timetable the insurgents will simply wait us out. Say what? They LIVE there. They can “wait us out” for 100 years no matter what we do.
